As I mentioned in a previous post, at the beginning of the month my mother, sister, sister-in-law, her daughter, Mia and I went to visit my Grandpa Bohn. We spent at least a good 11 hours traveling that whole weekend and with two girls under the age of 2 we weren't quite sure how things would go, but 11 hours later and only about 2-3 major melt downs between the two girls and I would call that a success! When we were at Grandpa Bohn's we decided to have a Grandma Bohn party in honor of my grandma who passed away last April. When my sister and I would spent a couple of weeks at my grandparents house each summer my grandma would always have treats on hand, let us order what we wanted when the Schwann's man came, have little parties using all of grandma's fun dishes, and do lot's of tying quilts and puzzles. Sooooo...we did exactly that for our Grandma party. We make her famous and much loved chocolate pillows and chocolate cookies with marshmallows (complete with fun dishes), had Schwann's lasagna for dinner, and did a puzzled. We enjoyed visiting with Grandpa and listening to all the stories he had to tell. It was a another fun and memorial weekend at Grandma and Grandpa Bohn's!
This is one of the ways we tried to entertain the girls on the long trip.
